Mother Jones Radio 06-03-12: Special Oceans Coverage; FBI Whistleblower Runs for Congress; How to Be "Cosmopolitan"




Mother Jones' special oceans cover story exposed the problems facing the world's seas. So how about some solutions? The "Ocean Champions," two longtime ocean advocates, specialize in solving the oceans' dilemmas. Plus, Bruce Franklin explains how a football tycoon took George H.W. Bush's oil company and used it to declare war on the fish that built America. Also, 2002 Time Person of the Year Coleen Rowley is the plainspoken FBI whistleblower who exposed the agency's failure to act before 9/11. Now, she's running for Congress as a Democrat in Minnesota. But will her refusal to change her image and stop talking about Iraq hurt her at the polls? Plus, we talk to Kwame Anthony Appiah, author of "Cosmopolitanism: Ethics in a World of Strangers." He tells us what it means to be a "citizen of the world," and why that doesn't necessarily mean being a pacifist or a moral relativist. Finally, political comedian Will Durst skewers George Bush's passage to India.
